I loved this trip. It's a postcard perfect place. Also, we had an awesome guide. Not only is he well informed about the historical context of the place and Austria on the whole, but he also knew how to tell them humorously. It was a pleasure seeing the locale through his perspective.

Very well done tour. On the way there and back, the guides gave us lots of information about the regions we were passing through. And once we got there, we enjoyed the included boat ride and were recommended things to do in the area. I only wish we were allotted more time in the town itself - we drove 4 hours each way just to spend so little time. I imagine we could've spent an extra hour in hallstatt and still been home early. Nonetheless, we enjoyed ourselves.

This was a great option to be able to just go in/out of Hallstatt in a day. On the ride our tour guide provided history, pointed out sites and recommended things to do. We loved Hallstatt and if you have more time to visit it would highly recommend. Only uncomfortable part was that it was hot the day we went and as they do there, the bus wasn’t kept cool enough which was unpleasant but not unbearable. But the bus did have a toilet on board, so that was good.
